Your sender in the tank is Ford. The dash assembly is Isspro. Fleetrwood used them for a few years, but they gave a lot of problems and they dropped them. The dash module can be sent to Isspro and they will check or rebuild any part for a fairly reasonable amount of money. Isspro's number is 1 800 888 8065

I haves similar problem with our 1984 Ford E350 Fleetwood Jamboree. The gas gauge moves only 1/8". When it's empty the needle sits 1/16" below the empty line and when we fuel up the needle sits 1/16" above the empty line. I was thinking that something might be obstructing the float from moving to the full position....any ideas?
I was also hoping here was an access maybe under the flooring above the fuel tank.

Hey guys I was having the same problem in my 90 ford class c and I fixed it today with a new float, my gauge would just move a hair so with a great suggestion I bought a new float from jc pony parts cost me $6 with shipping and my gauge is working great now it will be easy to tell if your old float is full of fuel!

How did you access the top of your fuel tank? Was there a access in the floor or did you have to pull the tank down?

I dropped the tank but I have heard of guys cutting access holes, that wasn't on my radar because I have hard wood in my Motorhome

Hmmm...I was about 50/50 with dropping the tank or pulling up flooring. Don't really want to do either. But at least I've pulled a few tanks fairly resent.

Fixed

Thanks everone for the great info. I dropped the tank yesterday and found the wires to the sending unit were pinched. The sending unit was by Transfer Flow inc and was a 90 ohm unit. Also the fuel pump is a Walbro 526. Im in the process to cut a hole in the floor so in the future access from under the bed will make it easier.
